A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….

When Imperial scientists discovered that the Black Metal could be used to carbonize living being indefinitely, they also realized that they could trigger a dangerous side effect – a transmogrification process which replaced the subject’s skin with Black Metal. However, the mortality rate of this process was close to 100%, so the effects of a successful transmogrification wasn’t thoroughly studied until an Imperial Destroyer landed on the Wild World and managed to transmogrify an animal there. But the cost of this knowledge was high, as the beast continued to break free and kill off most of the crew. The rest died from the Black Death, which they had managed to contract during one of their exploration runs of the planet.

After someone have been carbonized inside a black metal container, four buttons are inserted into the metal slab. A green, red, blue and yellow button. The green button starts the transmogrification process, the red de-carbonizes the subject, the blue levitates the 2.000 pounds heavy slab, and the yellow button evaporates the slab, turning the subject into a permanent Black Metal statue with little hope of ever being returned into a living being again. However, evidence suggests that Black Metal statues (unlike mere carbonized subjects) are aware of their surroundings at all times, and could in theory become trapped in an eternal nightmare.

The Transmogrification Process:
To survive the process, you need to succeed 10 consecutive CON checks. The DC starts at 21 and increases by 1 until the last check at 30. If you fail a check, your body and the rest of the slab become a black liquid at first, before it evaporates totally. however, should you survive the 10 checks, your skin has been replaced with Black Metal, and you are permanently changed in the following ways:

You have become a construct subtype, and no longer need air or sustenance. You also stop aging and will never die of old age.
You can never wildshape, shapechange, polymorph or in any other way change your physical appearance.
You are immune to all effects which require a CON check.
+50 natural AC
You only take 10% physical damage.
you are immune to mind-affecting effects.
+50% MS/HS
You are impervious to non-epic spells and weapons.
You are not subject to critical hits, subdual damage, ability damage, ability drain, fatigue, exhaustion or energy drain.
Your natural attacks (bite not included) ignore armor, are treated as Ghost touch and deal structural damage (but do not ignore stoneskin or deal impact/crushing damage).
